Craigslist is going to be the end of me

Living in a college town, if I keep my eyes peeled, I have found that I can get superb deals on tanks. I'm going to go look at yet another 10 gallon this week. $10 for the tank, heater, air pump, 3 filter cartridges, the top for the aquarium, florescent bulb, and some decorations. How can I pass that up, as long as it's in decent shape? Even if I have to recaulk, it's well worth it.

Darn potato chip fish!

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

Ahh yes I've seen good deals on tanks of ALL shapes & sizes for sale on Craigslist. I just missed out on a 20 Gallon long tank that I wanted to but Hermit Crabs in. I already have way too many tanks with fish in it anyway so there is no room.......yet. LOL

Fish are God's RAINBOWS underwater

The only 55g here for sale is $700, which is not fair. I need one for my cichlids. I could buy a new one at the pet store for $400 with tank.
